I am trying to customise the positioning of labels in relation to points in a vector file layer in the new QGIS 2.0.
In QGIS 1.8 I was able to enter two customised X/Y columns in the attribute table of a shapefile to precisely align the labels around the points.
However, from the new QGIS 2.0 menu 'Layer label options'>'Placement'>'Data defined', the X and Y 'Alignment' options are greyed out and I am unable to enter the columns.
Please see a screen dump of the issue below
Can anybody explain why this might be the case? Thanks for your consideration.
